Ask an Android Dev: What Languages Should I Learn?

09/30/2013

Although Java is an important language for Android developers, it’s one among many. Knowing additional languages is useful for Android developers, engineer Ernest Holloway explains in our latest Ask a Dev video.

Some applications may have demands that can be better tackled through alternative languages, he says.

For example, advanced animations and applications that depend on hardware features could benefit from the native approach. But for companies that want a single codebase to be distributed across multiple platforms, HTML5 or CCS3 may make more sense.

The video above also discusses the differences in user experience between web and native approaches.
